Types of Central Air Conditioning Systems

Split Systems
Split Gas Systems. Refers to air conditioning systems that have both indoor and outdoor units. This system is the most common and is designed to keep you comfortable in any season. During the summer, it is an electric air conditioner that cools and dehumidifies your home. In the winter, it’s a gas furnace that warms your entire home.

 

Split Heat Pump Systems.

A Split System Heat Pump is an air source heat pump that has an indoor air-handling unit and heat exchanger which is separate from the outdoor compressor and exchanger.
Using electricity as its energy source, heat pumps are used for either the heating or cooling of your home by transferring heat between two reservoirs.
In the warmer months, the heat pump acts like an air conditioner, removing heat from the air inside your home and transferring it outside.
During colder months, heat from outdoor air is extracted and transferred to the interior of your home. Believe it or not, even a 32º Fahrenheit day produces enough heat to warm a home via a heat pump.

Packaged Systems

Packaged Gas Systems.

Gas/electric packaged systems  can switch from electric air conditioning to gas heating to give you more fuel options. The system contains the same components as your typical split-system — all working together in one space-saving unit.  Packaged units are typically installed outdoors at ground level or on the roof.
